Quality (132) National commitment (7) Our experience of kick starting a quality revolution in MNH settings across India and South East Asia (2)

13 July, 2021

Dear Vikram Datta,

I am very interested to hear about your work as President of the Nationwide Quality of Care Network (NQOCN) of India, which partners with the Government of India to improve quality of care for mothers and their newborn infants.


It is impressive that you are also assisting in the development of point-of-care quality improvement and training initiatives that are being used in 10 other countries in this region.

Are there other Quality of Care Network networks in India that deal with other aspects of health care?

I am also interested to hear about the NQOCN Point of Care Quality Improvement Community of Practice (www.nqocncop.org) and have subscribed to this to learn from your members.

You mention how you drive quality improvement by supporting quality champions at all levels of health care delivery systems and I would be keen to learn more about this.

As you say, I also hope to hear from other HIFA members worldwide about their experiences of factors which have helped them scale up Quality Improvement at national level.

Best wishes, Neil
